Happy Holidays


We got a little bit of snow yesterday and they are forecasting more tonight so I'm using the weather break to do some shopping in town before possibly getting snowed in. It's going to be a total girl's day with my mom and sisters so it should be fun. :)

Quickly, before I head out, I've got a card to share using the Winter Wryn digi stamp from Tiddly Inks. Something about Wryn in her stylin' Santa hat was just super sweet. So when I was flipping through the Make It Merry paper pad and found these super sweet candy canes I had to pair the two together. Plus, the pink was a nice change up to the holiday cards that I've been making. I don't know how noticeable it's been but the last few weeks I've been experimenting a bit and changing up my approach with coloring faces on images that don't have noses. It's a subtle shadow between the eyes and I'm hoping to possibly make a video for it tomorrow. Wish me luck... and time, LOL! ;)

Ok, time to shower and get ready for the big shopping day.

Amy--your never ending talent blows me away every post! I love the subtle shadow and can't wait to see this video because I always struggle how to do no noses (like Magnolia). I love the pink in this card! But darn you for making me have to go buy practically every stamp you use! First SOG, then Lili of the Valley, than Sugar Nellie and now Tiddly Inks;)

Danni said...

Super cute!!

Nancy Thomas said... cute! I love the subtle shading on her face. You've done a fabulous job with that and I will look forward to your video. My first attempt at adding a nose was kinda pitiful! Got your Christmas card today - beautiful as always.

Tina said...

I had noticed that you've been adding the nose shadows. Oh, I hope you get the opportunity to do a video. I love this card; Wryn is one of my fave images. Hugs, Tina

Amy this is just too cute! I love how you have colored little Wryn and the papers that you used with her. I am really loving the look of the chipboard buttons. That is awesome looking. I have never seen them in person, but I think that is really really a great idea and look. :O) I hope that you, your mom and sisters all had a wonderful shopping girls day out yesterday. Sounds like a ton of fun! Have a wonderful Friday. Hugs, Lisa
